Major: BS Computing and Security Technology

Year: Pre-Junior

Hometown: Port-Harcourt, Nigeria

I chose this major because... I am interested in seeing how security cuts across different industries and our day-to-day lives. Coming from a developing country, I know that security will be a driving force in the advancement of countries and economies and I aspire to be an individual promoting such improvements.

Clubs/Extracurricular Activities: Co-founder of Blooming Lasting Careers, Social Innovation Fellow at StartingBloc, Fellow at Rewriting the Code, Member of Drexel Women in Computing Society, Member of the National Society of Black Engineers.

Co-ops I've done:

  • Digital Quality Analyst at JPMorgan Chase & Co. (currently)
  • Research Co-op at Privacy, Security and Automation Lab (PSAL)

When I'm not at Drexel, I'm... I am probably at a conference or at an event themed on tech or overall professional development.

When you are in Philadelphia, I think you should... I think you should visit the LOVE sculpture, try out as many things as possible at the Reading Terminal Market, and enjoy an authentic cheesesteak!

Advice to new/incoming CCI students: See college as a marathon, not a race. Know that your journey will not look like your peers, because of the diverse backgrounds we all come from, and your uniqueness is your power. Take advantage of all the resources available to you. There is so much to explore beyond the four walls of the classroom you’re in. Network, connect with people, attend technical and non-technical events, expand your knowledge and never stop learning.

Favorite Animated Character: Kim Possible
